WASHINGTON HUSKIES 2017 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE
Washington at Rutgers, 5 p.m., FS1
Winless last year in Big Ten (0-9), Scarlet Knights picking bad time to turn page on horrendous season.
Montana at Washington, 5 p.m., Pac-12 Network
Edgy underdogs? Big Sky Conference’s Grizzlies out of FCS preseason top-25 poll for first time since 1991.
Fresno State at Washington, 6:30 p.m., Pac-12 Network
Back-to-back weekends at Alabama and the Huskies won’t seem like such a peachy stretch for Bulldogs.
Washington at Colorado, TBD
Buffaloes bringing eight senior offensive starters and new quarterback (Steven Montez) to rematch of Pac-12 title game.
Washington at Oregon State, TBD
Should be a ground-and-pound special. Both offenses boast deep pack of hard-nosed yet elusive running backs.
California at Washington, TBD
It’s Justin Wilcox time at Cal. Last time Huskies faced ex-coordinator-turned-head-coach for first time was 2003.
Washington at Arizona State, TBD
Jake Browning’s only 400-yard passing day came against this porous secondary in 2015. A desert encore in store?
UCLA at Washington, TBD
Defense still elite. It’s now up to returning quarterback Josh Rosen, under new offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, to be same.
Oregon at Washington, TBD
Doesn’t need to be “pointed” out that Ducks saw their 12-game series winning streak snapped in Eugene last year – 70-21.
Washington at Stanford, 7:30 p.m., FS1
Cardinal was embarrassed last season on national television (44-6 loss); expect this encounter to be bruising and more competitive.
Utah at Washington, TBD
Troy Taylor — Browning’s old high school coach — in charge of revamping Utes’ offense to join modern high-flying passing era.
Washington State at Washington, TBD
Will the Cougars make this a competitive Apple Cup again? They’ve lost the past four by an average of nearly 23.0 points per game.
